So, I've tried a few different blogs over the years. I believe my first one was on xanga.com...I was in high school. Also, I'm too embarressed to share any of those. I was embarressing in high school. I probably still am, but I've come to grips with it.
I also blog a little bit on myspace and facebook. I'll probably end up importing most of that stuff over the next few days. Most of that stuff contains my political rantings.
I'm absolutely horrible at keeping a journal, though it's something I've always wanted to do. I figured if I have some dedicated readers, I'll be more likely to write stuff. Right now, I'm at a really awesome stage in my life. I have dreams, and I have all the tools I need to pursue those dreams. Now is a perfect time for me to 1- reflect on how I got where where I am now and 2- observe where I go from here.
And with that said.... if I don't feel like I have a responsibility to do something, I'm probably not going to do it. There are a few exceptions, like school, video games, and MMA. I do that stuff for me, and not really for anyone else. I'm not really sure how I feel about this attitude, on whether it's a good quality or not. It definitely can get me in trouble though. For example, I just recently quit my job at Best Buy.
It was sort of fun working there, but not really worth my time. However, I felt a responsibility towards the people I worked with, because I was in charge of a couple events and I always tried to be innovative in my boring work. I had a hard time quitting because I didn't want to let anyone down. A few of my school colleagues (one Glen, especially..) really gave me a hard time for that. In the end, I quit Best Buy and I am coping with that quite well. I love having my weekends and not working on Sundays.
Anyways, the moral of the story is, I either have to really enjoy blogging and/or feel obligated to do so. I've been reading a few other blogs, and that's getting me motivated because it looks fun.
Here's a more detailed list of things I wish to write about:
School at UW
My awesome friends and adventures
Future goals (careers, law school, hobbies I'd like to take up)
Musings of life
Goal of the day: Invite 5 people to read my blog.
